that could take place as a result of congress failing to reach a debt deal. even the defense secretary said the cuts could be staef dating. does that hurt the president in the vet community? >> number one, congress must act and avoid sequestration op any of these defense cuts. number two, you know, governor romney seems to confuse the defense budget from the veterans budget. what i have spent the last several months talking about is the president's, not just his decisiveness as a what happeneder and chief and what a strong leader he's been and going after al qaeda around the world and eliminating osama bin laden from the face of the earth, but also honoring the commitment to veterans. you know, mitt romney, as you well know, spent his entire convention speech accepting his party's nomination to be commander in chief and didn't mention those serving in what will be america's longest war in afghanistan and didn't mention veterans once. his website didn't mention veterans until sometime this summer. the president has made sure we've honored our commitment to veterans, increased funding for vet

on defense. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. the latest thing we got from romney because he said so, was, you know what i want to do with people when they are poor? shove them in the emergency room. where was obama tonight? >> progressives from chris matthews to bill maher to michael moore all across the progressive wing of the democratic party, there's great disappointment. >> they were jumping out of their seats watching. >> i understand. i understand there was a hunger for us to attack romney more personally than the president did last night. >> bottom line, romney scores, but was last night the first to game-change his campaign and what they sorely needed? >> the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. >> i think governor strickland was watching a different debate from me and the american people. >> yeah, big bird got hit by the bus last night. joining me is ed schultz, good to have you here. i was watching you last night, your immediate reactio

to have a strong defense, these are all going to be important issues here. the president's team has a much better ground game in the state. i think some of that movement is the base coming home to mitt romney. which is something you expect to happen. late in the cycle. and so, the president has made the case. unemployment in virginia is below the national average as it is in ohio and florida. and i think that's one of the reasons he's doing better in these states. is not just the jobs numbers from friday, that show that we have gone below 8%. but that it's really made an impact in these communities. >> i want to go back and talk about what everyone else continues to talk b. the debate performance, in colorado on wednesday. take a list ton what jamcarvill said this morning and then we'll talk about it on the other side. >> it looked like to me he really didn't want to be there. his mind wasn't on it he didn't want to engage. he just wanted to get through the 90 minutes. >> that's the perception that we've heard from a lot of folks. not just on the right, the folks in the middle, folks on th

and then contrast that strongly and put romney on the defensive about the fact how can you actually tell the american people that the policies you support, which are the same that created this mess, are going to lead us to a different direction and then don't filibuster. i love the president, but boy, he has a tendency to go on and on in some of those questions and in a debate, that can get you in trouble. >> get in, get out. new polling is showing mitt romney has narrowed the gap. good news for him. in the last two weeks and your tips, you said the governor needs to show passion for the country and it people. what does he say to voters to do that because there is still the sting from that 47% remark that people are not walking away from that is resognating. >> one of the things we often had conversations with rick santorum about. he had no lack of passion on the stage. one of the things he did was leave everybody in a negative tone. with the statistics of where we are now. unemployment being high and poverty being high. and then just walk off and say thanks, everybody. we kept trying to

law called the defense of marriage act signed by president clinton. it says the federal government will recognize only conventional marriages, meaning no federal benefits in states where same-sex marriage is already equal. in the court did strike the law down, states would not be required to permit same-sex marriages but the federal government would have to recognize them where they're legal. craig, back to you. >> pete williams in washington. thanks so much for that let's switch gears to indiana and the senate race where things just got lot more interesting. a few months ago, tea party star, richard murdoch, defeated veteran republican senator richard luger. murdoch's campaign was built on framing dick luger as a rhino, a republican in name only. but guess who has gone rhino? you got it, it's murdoch. an apparent attempt to pander to moderate voters by scrapping the ultraconservative label and running toward the center. this includes suddenly coming out in support of parts of the president's health care plan. that's just one of the things. could this be a sign, though, that the te

this case by case. what we expect from this time they are assembled. >> first of all, the defense of marriage act. this was signed by president clinton and for the purposes of federal law, marriage is only between a man and a woman. that enmoos federal government won't recognize same-sex marriages even in the states where that's legal. that's unusual because states usually define what is a valid marriage. several lower federal courts have said that's unconstitutional discrimination. and the supreme court will probably take this case. i say probably. it's not on the docket yet. but whenever the lower courts strike down an act of congress, the supreme court considers its job to step in and take this case. i think we would hear about that. probably the monday after thanksgiving. that's when we'll find out if they're going to take those cases. the other question is whether they will hear the challenge to california's proposition 8. that is also before the supreme court. not clear whether they would hear that. they may take the cases and decide to punt on prop 8. >> if they do that, ag

session is what to do about the fiscal cliff, this whammy, this triple whammy of tax hikes and defense cuts and social program cuts that are scheduled to take effect the first of the year. i talked to one democratic congressman, a leader last night, i ran into him at an event in suburban washington. he said, don't look for congress to do anything substantiative in that lame duck, however, they might push that deadline back, work out some kind of deal, push it back six months, and get some serious negotiations on what to do about that fiscal cliff, some time in the springtime. >> mike viqueira, thank you. >>> the spin machine is in full effect over those jobs numbers. first, president obama used his weekly address to tout that drop in unemployment numbers to 7.8. >> more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> but mitt romney on his weekly podcast this morning argued that it is just more proof that obama's policies had failed. >> we created fewer jobs in september than in august, and fewer jobs in august than in july. and we've lost over 600,000 manufac
